Project Steps

  • Complete the Training & Assessment process for this project:
    1. Read and understand all Project Training Documents provided by the Project Manager - Training Guidelines, Training Videos, FAQs.
    2. Go through the Adventure Portfolio provided to you by the Project Manager and conduct an Online Research of the various packages offered by Adventure Nation.
    3. Finally, Take the Project Assessment to gauge your own understanding of the project tasks & deliverables. The Project Manager will also check your responses and scores and accordingly train you on the gaps in learning (if any).

    1. You will be assigned a specific set of customers along with their contact details and previous activity details.
    2. Call up these Customers one by one and Carry out the Market Research using the detailed Survey and Interest Validation Questionnaire provided by the Project Manager and analyse their interests/intents towards any travel plans in the near future.
    3. If they seem interested (Hot/ Warm), then use the AN Trip Directory (will be provided by the Project Manager) to recommend trips/ activities to them as per their preferences and areas of interests (as per guidelines given during training) and then validate their interest in booking these trips as Hot, Warm, Cold.
  • NOTE: After you have submitted the data, the Adventure Nation Team will follow up with the "Hot/ Warm" leads generated by you and work towards closing the same by getting them to complete their bookings on Adventure Nation. Keeping this in mind, ensure that your validation of the customer's interest as "Hot/ Warm" is genuine and as accurate as possible.
